I remember hearing Seth Godin say on a podcast that he thinks everyone should start a blog and write on it every day. In 2017 he wrote his 7,000th post, which he said added up to 37 full-length books. When asked for advice on becoming a better designer, he said to write every day. Last year I got on a kick of reading Annie Dillard. I enjoyed her style. She would take her observations and weave them in throughout her essays.
One of my favorite practices I’ve adopted in my professional career is to write about everything I’m working on or thinking about in a place coworkers could see. I thought I’d share the ways I’ve made this work for me. Make your own space The goal of having your own space is so you don’t have to think about or care about making a new page. Without it, you feel like you have to find the official place to write something authoritative about an official topic.
